When I was 14, I attended my first ever Vans Warped Tour. I remember not even wanting to go, complaining how it was going to be a hot and sweaty mess, and scared that I would get trampled over by mosh pitters and crowd surfers. That first year, when I walked into the gates of Vans Warped Tour, every negative thought I had was proven wrong. I fell in love that year. With the music, the bands, the people, the vibes, the energy, all of it. I lived for the happiness that every person walked around with. I was so captivated and intrigued by one thing. That one thing being passion. I wanted to be a part of that community, that industry, that creative atmosphere. Recently, my 14 year got to turn a dream of hers into reality by shooting and doing press for Vans Warped Tour! I cannot believe that I was blessed with the opportunity to shoot both main stages that included some of my favorite bands and all time inspirations. Huge thank you to DMV Access for reaching out to me and giving me this opportunity.
Below are a few shots!
